The first question you may have is, what is a water service replacement, exactly? Well, residential plumbing systems are made up of a number of separate sub-systems. The water system in your home is one part of this, and so is your water and waste drainage system. The water system itself carries water to your home from the water treatment plant via your area’s water mains system.
In Toronto, homeowners are responsible for installing and maintaining their own home water service. If the water service line from the mains to your home needs to be replaced, or if other parts of your home’s water supply system needs upgrading, these are jobs that should be undertaken by a professional plumber. New Canadian Drain & Plumbing is one of the best plumbing companies in Toronto; if you suspect that you might need a water service replacement, you should call us to speak to one of our experts today.
Some Reasons Why You May Need A Water Service Replacement
1. Removing Lead Piping. Unfortunately, in the GTA there is still some water service infrastructure that uses old lead piping. If this is the case for your home, that piping should be replaced to eliminate the health risks that may be caused by lead exposure. You can have an expert check to see whether there is any lead piping in your water supply line.
If so, the best thing to do would be to have a water service replacement done. You would have to change both the city-owned pipes (which run between the mains and your property) and your privately-owned pipes (which run from the edge of your property line to your home). If you wish to upgrade your water service line due to the presence of lead piping, you will need to fill out a form to let the city’s authorities know that you intend to do so.
2. If you are building a new home, you will need to comply with strict water service installation regulations. You will need to hire an experienced contractor like New Canadian Drain & Plumbing that is familiar with all the bylaws and red tape. This will greatly simplify the process for you, and allow you to connect your home’s piping system to the municipal water mains without any extra headaches.
3. In many homes, there simply comes a time when you need to upgrade your water service. Older homes which were built before the 1970s basically have outdated systems, some of which use galvanized steel pipes. These cause mineral build-ups, corrosion, and blockages. The fact is, many people try to postpone this inevitability, but the wisest thing you can do is to simply invest in a water service replacement. This will ensure that you don’t suffer from water damage later due to broken or burst pipes.
